It seems like just a couple of days ago, Kevin Durant was getting dunked on. Because he was. It happens to everyone in the NBA. Like I said, there's no shame in it. Then again, sometimes guys get done so dirty that it looks a little embarrassing.
Last night, Durant was the dunker, and Toronto Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas was the dunkee. It really is a thing of beauty and raw power.
At least Valanciunas got his 'Welcome to the NBA' moment out of the way pretty early on in the season. Hopefully he gets over it as quickly as it happened.
